HDS develops project data management solution for Schlumberger’s Petrel reservoir software

Infotech Lead Asia: Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) has developed a new project data management solution with enhanced backup and recovery capabilities for Schlumberger’s Petrel reservoir software.

The solution is expected to enhance productivity and accelerate workflow analysis and decision making, HDS said in a statement.

“Faster time to production is the mantra for energy exploration and production companies globally,” said Ravi Chalaka, vice president, Solutions Marketing, Hitachi Data Systems.

Hitachi Data Systems information management solutions deliver cost efficiency, performance and advanced data management features to the oil and gas industry, one of the largest consumers of data in the world. These advantages help meet the challenges of today’s data-intensive oil and gas exploration and production, as well as strict project deadlines.

The Hitachi integrated plug-in for Schlumberger’s Petrel reservoir software enables project data management by synchronizing active data with centrally managed storage from Hitachi Data Systems.

HDS claims that it provides four times more snapshot capacity than the leading competitor. Hitachi enhanced backup and recovery for Schlumberger Petrel accelerates productivity by reducing downtime associated with uploading files to central storage repositories.

Moreover, a scale-out network storage reference architecture with the Lustre file system combines access to all data and enterprise-class HDS storage and compute infrastructure for high availability. The presentation highlights scalability and performance with a parallel file system, easy design with pre-architected building blocks utilizing a range of HDS offerings, and simplified management with Intel Chroma

The Hitachi Unified Compute Platform (UCP) enables rapid deployment of mission-critical workloads in the private cloud. Hitachi Unified Compute Platform Pro for VMware vSphere unifies management of virtual and physical resources, allowing customers to increase IT efficiency and gain business velocity.

The Hitachi Compute Blade 500 flexible architecture and logical partitioning allow configurations to exactly match application needs, and allow multiple applications to easily and securely co-exist in the same chassis.

In addition, Hitachi Unified Storage and Hitachi Unified Storage accelerate data-intensive workflows in energy, oil and gas markets. The solutions enable higher quality decision making, which leads to lower risk and more business opportunities. Unique architectural features eliminate the need to compromise between performance and enterprise-class functionality.
